Trivia

Design Origin

Ludicolo may be based on a duck or platypus, a kappa, and a colocynth or pineapple. Given its poncho-like body hair, sombrero-like head, and association with dance and music, it may also be based on a Mexican dancer.

Name Origin

Ludicolo may come from ludic (aimlessly playful) or ludicrous (absurd) and colocynth (a plant with green and yellow fruit).

Colo may be an anagram of loco (Spanish for "crazy"). Ludicolo might also reference ridiculo (Spanish for "ridiculous").
